DXchange integration platform comes with a built-in version control management that lets you handle source control management within the application itself, making it a truly unified platform. DXchange offers an enterprise-grade integration platform which supports versioning of the projects, integrations and related artifacts, which helps in the following –
• View the configuration change history of the Integrations and related artifacts
• Rollback to the previous successful configurations if the current version is corrupted or not working as expected
• Make updates to a deployed integration
• Handle the build conflicts effortlessly
This feature offers an immense value proposition for the enterprises when multiple users are working on different integration projects. Each user can retrieve different versions of a project and the platform manager will notify them of the modifications made by another user for taking further actions accordingly. There are multiple benefits of a built-in version control management, such as–
1. Ensures Transparency – A built-in version control management ensures transparency in the application. It lets the user see which configuration is made at what time by whom. Users can work on their implementations in isolation and can collaborate with the team once their work is complete. It enables parallel development streams by allowing users to work on changes in isolation without the environment changing underneath them.
2. Easy Reviews – Version control management keeps a track of the configuration change history of the integrations and their related artifacts. It helps in conducting a process review of what has changed in any given process since the last time it was modified. All the users are up to date with what components have been modified and are about to be introduced into the higher environments
3. Enables Parallel Development of Processes – Many a time, processes (and its many components) share sub-processes. In such a scenario, version control management helps by building a repository of all the processes, helping in running each process independently even when a subprocess resource is being worked on. A user working on a process no longer have to worry about another user accidentally modifying it while working on it, as the user acquires a lock on the object, they are working on.
4. Promotes Collaboration – A version control management promotes a culture of collaboration between the users. It tracks and aids in eliminating the conflicts between multiple users by providing a record of the changes made. Also, it ensures each team member is working on the latest version and makes it easier to collaborate.
5. Back Up/ Disaster Recovery – A version control management acts as a backup as it stores all the integration components, i.e. a replica of your enterprise repository. Users can switch over to a previous version of an Integration effortlessly with no downtime to their system availability In other words, a built-in version control management empowers an enterprise to have good visibility and control on the integrations. It enables simultaneous work, helps in automating tasks, keeps track changes, and prepares you for unforeseen events.
